Have you considered switching to politics.

Impeccable fence sitting!

Edit: Dang it, now I'm going to get splinters.


I do try my best, when making non-committal comments ^^

But I was in politics...
(ie a faceless party drone)
didn't fancy it much, as it require too much having the right opinion, at the right time, at the right place-kind of talk.

Looking (and only looking) at lizards at the pet store as a perk to Crookshanks for two days spent with the General's family.


Why NobodysHome Doesn't Do Plumbing:

  • The bathtub drain was running really slowly, which, with three people with long hair in the family, just isn't a surprise
  • I left Liquid Plumbr in the drain for the day. Of course, rather than clearing the clog, this congealed it into a solid, concrete-like mass in my drain
  • I tried the old, "Break up the clog with a plunger" trick, and that only further encouraged it
  • I bought a snake. It was too big for the drain
  • I bought a second snake. It butted its head against the clog a few times, whimpered, and slunk away

  • So a grand total of maybe $50 spent (2 snakes and two bottles of liquid drain opener), maybe two hours, and it's time to just bring in a pro, who will give me a baleful look, turn on the motorized snake, and solve my issue in under 10 minutes.

    *SIGH*.

    I have an anti hair snake that works wonders. Pm me your number and I'll send a pic.

    No. It is not that kind of snake.

    Also, get a tub shroom.

    I have a steel mesh strainer for the drain, and one a month I clean it out with a tool that looks like a screwdriver with a curved miniature crowbar looking thing on the end instead of a standard screwdriver head. No idea what you're supposed to use it for, but that's what it's good for.

    EDIT: I googled it. Apparently it's a "tack puller". No idea how I acquired it.

    Crookshanks finally understands why we get so frustrated with our families.

    They lump together and don't socialize with anyone else, preferably with food nearby and without a lot of movement.

    Whereas we like to explore and move around.

    Which is really weird because both our parents are explorers.

    Yeeeeeaaaaaah. I have a plastic cover over my tub drain to catch hair and other debris for this exact reason. I clean it out with a bit of TP each day to get rid of the general hair, etc. buildup, and toss it in with the laundry for a few rounds in the washer to clean up the soap and grime gunk that builds up inside over the week. Works wonders.

    John left yet?


    Doesn't look like he was here.

    What did you do to him?!?!


    Let's all take a moment and be thankful that sweat is (typically) clear.

    (I know that there is a condition that can cause colored sweat. And that some animals, like hippos, have colored sweat. But let's stick with normal human biology for the moment.)

    There are some people who would still be late even if they could teleport anywhere instantly.


    Scientists need to find a way to convert human stress into electricity. Then install these generators in schools, especially during finals, and power the world.


    If a poison is past it's expiration date, is it more dangerous or less?


    It's almost a shame that Aragorn, with help from the elves, was able to save Frodo after he was stabbed by the Ringwraiths. It would have been adorable for there to have been a tiny 10th Nazgul riding about.

    Go back in time 100 years and one of the most terrifying "everyday" things for other people to see you do would be to take out your contact lenses.


    On a more serious note, I have doubts about Amazon's promise for 2-day delivery on the item I ordered this morning. It promised that I will receive the item on Monday, still says that in fact, and yet it also says that it hasn't shipped yet. Since I really doubt that it will be picked up on Sunday, I have little hope that it will get to me on Monday.

    John was never here.He has his day off on Sunday.

    It always bugs me when animators draw sweat as slightly yellow colored. so gross.

    Its really a case by case basis. Pepper spray apparently only becomes more dangerous once it is expired.

    Oh ok Well that throws off my whole rhythm.

    Also Gran It is possible that your amazon item is shipped but they didn't update the program too. Dominoes online thing does that to me it will say baking but then they will show up and give me the pizza. Igther they didn't update or they have discovered time travel.

    I just confessed to being a stalker. I told 2 of my PBP players about their previous games, and that I had been tracking them.

    Again I said I was going to look at post history and all that on recruitment, so that shouldn't be that much of a surprise I suppose.


    Well as long as you don't ambush them knock em out and lock them in your basement.

    I hate that mentality. I always plan to get places at least 15 minutes early. I can't stand it when people are late, unless they call/text/whatever to let you know they are running late and give an updated ETA. It's one of the big differences between my brother and I. He has no problem being late, even more than 30 minutes without bothering to tell anyone. I once pissed him off because we were supposed to meet for dinner at 7. When he hadn't showed by 7:15, I tried texting him and he didn't reply. So at 7:30 I called him. He didn't answer so I left a voicemail. At 7:40, I decided to leave. He then showed up at 7:45, found I wasn't there, and was pissed off at me for leaving.

    If she did that then she wouldn't have to do PBP. She could chain them to a table and force them to play Pathfinder forever.

    Maybe, but that still isn't a great endorsement of their tracking service.

    I've had similar issues with pizza places before, only once or twice, but never with Dominos. Of course that's probably because I can't stand their pizza so I don't order from them.

    Your brother reminds me of my mom.

    She once invited me and my GF over for food and wasn't their... at her home... She went somewhere to get something and showed up late getting back. Keep in mind I knew she was going to be late so I already took my time to leave. So we were just standing outside waiting for her, and no she did not have a good reason for it.

    The absolute worst instance I can remember with his tardiness was ridiculous. He (and his wife, now ex, and kids) were coming to visit me and our folks (I was still in high school at the time). He lived about a 3 hour drive away, and promised to be there at 6:30 for dinner. My mom planned on them actually showing up at 7. Well, 7 came and went with no sign of them. Then 7:30, and we went ahead and ate. Then 8:00 passed. My brother didn't have a cell phone, so we couldn't call and ask where they were. When 9:00 passed, my mom was getting scared that they had been in an accident or something, and was asking my dad if we should call the police. Finally, at almost 10:00, my brother called. They were still at home, and were just about to get in the car. So, yeah. Three and a half hours after you were supposed to be here, you call to say that you're about to head out on a three hour drive. Thanks for that.


    They hadn't even left yet?!? WTF? Does he have kids? Like I wouldn't even bother coming at that point. Alright your brother wins. My mom is perpetually late for everything but shes not leave 3 hours after she was suppose to be there late.

    Your brother really puts being late to an art form. My BF isn't too punctual himself but at least he keeps me updated on delays. Maybe his wife left him because he was constantly late for things?

    I don't have a basement.

    And usually with family there's a certain culture in the family. So if your family is punctual, usually every member should be?

    I don't think I'd call it art. I'd call it being an a$&~**& who can't be bothered to show up when he says he will. Oddly, he is never late to work. And he and his ex broke up for reasons that had nothing to do with being late. There were a lot of...issues...in that divorce.

    well the thing about that is behavior learned from parent typically always go one of two ways behavior copying the parent or behavior doing the opposite of the parent. I'm virtually never late for anything myself.
